What type of stone do you recommend for the pathways between raised garden beds? Pets and kids will be walking on them. Any recommendation other than stone pathways?

Stepping stones, flagstone, bricks, field stone, or crushed rock pathways are all easy maintenance. If you go with crushed rocks, use 3/4 to 3/8 inch size. Rocks of this size do not shift underfoot the way pea gravel can. There are some walkable groundcovers available but with kids and pets I would be cautious. Most of these plants will flower and attract bees - not much fun for barefoot kids!
